Be Focused, Not Frenzied. Navigating Business Through Uncertainty

April 15, 2020, 11:00am – 12:00pm EDT

How are you dealing with your business situation in these uncertain times? Are you in the driver’s seat or the passenger seat? Sit in the driver’s seat, where you can navigate and steer, instead of in the passenger seat, where the route and destination are out of your hands. 
The results you create over the coming months depend - largely - on how well you address the things you can control. On this webinar, we’ll discuss the action steps you can take as a strategic business leader: 
  1. Determine your best possible outcomes
  2. Be the best thing your customers experience today
  3. Inspire a committed team
